You also have the additional opportunity to further connect with guests at the after-event dinner.

 

We'll handle the marketing to fill the room, provide you with marketing materials, and designate a spot for your merch or information at the event. You'll also have the opportunity to have your banner and landing page featured on our website community page. Most importantly, speakers receive contact information for pre-qualified leads for follow-ups after the event.
